PARIS, Jan 9 � Terrorists linked to each other seized hostages at two locations around Paris today, taking on hundreds of French security forces even as the city shut down a famed Jewish neighbourhood and scrambled to protect residents and tourists from further attacks, reports AP.

France has been on high alert for more attacks since the country�s worst terror attack in decades � the massacre on Wednesday in Paris at the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo that left 12 people dead.

The two sets of hostage-takers apparently know each other, said a police official who was not authorised to discuss the rapidly developing situations with the media.

The Paris Mayor�s office immediately announced the closure of all shops along Rosiers Street in the city�s famed Marais neighbourhood in the heart of the tourist district. Hours before the Jewish Sabbath, the street is usually crowded with shoppers � French Jews and tourists alike.
